The Review

Track Days Saloons Vauxhall VXR8-GTS VXR8 GTS (2010) 6.2 V8 (425 Hp)

Got to do a passenger ride around the Top Gear test track in the Vauxhall VXR8 GTS.


Summary

What can I say, this was an interesting experience. Jumping into the passenger seat of a Vauxhall VXR8 was err.. interesting. The driving itself was good. The driver managed to get the car doing things that the car was supposed to do. It was fast, loud and relatively raw all around. At the time, I had the C63, so it was a little funny getting out of a faster car, and into a slower car to do the lap. BUT, I will concede that I never drove my C63 like that, so it was an enjoyable experience. Check out the short video...

Would I recommend it? MAYBE

The passenger ride I would recommend, however, the car itself I am not as sure. There are better V8s out there for sure, but for the money, this still might be one of the cheaper ways to get your V8 kicks for the more raw out there.
